Stripey lives in Fair Dinkum flats with his parents Crikey and Sheila and wonders why he has stipes but his parents don’t. His sister, Leggy, tells him it’s to make himself invisible when he’s in his special place so Crikey sets off on a quest to explore. In this tale about camouflage and habitat, Stripey meets other Australian animals along the way, including a red kangaroo, a goanna, parrot, fruit bat and an echidna. As an added bonus, there is a double page spread at the back of the book with interesting facts about the included Australian animals.

About the Author

Wendy Binks

Wendy grew up on a dairy farm in the beautiful town of Denmark, South Western Australia and from an early age developed a keen interest in animals and the outdoors.

After her graduation with a BA in Art & Design from Curtin University in 1982 (majoring in ceramics), Wendy based herself and her business ‘Stunned Emu Designs’ in Fremantle, WA. Initially she produced handmade and hand painted pottery, combining her interest in Australian wildlife with her art. She became well known for her quirky characters, particularly her trademark ‘emu with attitude’.

The enthusiasm of children for her designs prompted Wendy to write her first children’s picture book, ‘Where’s Stripey?’ with ‘Stripey’ a baby emu as the main character. Having written, illustrated and self published the book to great acclaim (It won the prestigious WA Premiers Award for Children’s books), Wendy produced two more books starring Stripey: ‘Scrambled egg’ which was shortlisted for the WA Premier’s Awards and ‘Invisible Me.'
